Temperature regulation

Recommended Posts

How does the beerdroid cools down the brew to desired temperature? Lets say the brew needs 14 days fermitation at 12 celcius and your beerdroid is beeing stored in a room at 22 celcius. Are there any device inside the beerdroid which cools down?

Hi Sondre, welcome.

Yes the Beerdroid has a mini compressor that heats and cools just like a reverse cycle air conditioning.

Thanks for reply. Maybe a little off topic but do you have any experience with the ikegger which is made to fit the beerdroid? If so, how long does it takes to carbonate the beer?

You can fill most stainless kegs from the Droid. IKegger have videos on how to fill and carbonation methods. It’s best to view the videos as carbonation can be done several ways- set and forget (connecting co2 at serving pressure), forced carbonation from being ready within about an hour to a bit slower 24 hours.

No, although you can use sugar, with the stainless kegs (like iKegger) co2 is best, it’s wether you want fast carbonation with the co2 or slower carbonation (around 3 to 4 days for 10l.
